Business dinner for 4 on a Monday night. The place was not all all busy with only a few tables occupied. Service was good - attentive, but not hovering or pushy. The menu is, well, interesting. No simple slabs of meat or fish at this place. I had as an appetizer (small plate) a skillet with... read more

Paid $200+ for Valentine's Dinner. People were friendly but service was rushed. Cheap wine glasses and tables so close together you could hear everyone's conversation. Limited menu and food came out within 60 seconds of placing the order. Meat was lukewarm and dry. We will not return. Overall not a great experience for a special night. Will go back to... More

Bar tender is passionate about drinks and is excellent (the drinks are awesome). Service is good. Food is mediocre at best... Beef was extremely dry and clams were fishy. Not up to par for our Valentine's Day date night (or any night frankly). Would not come back.

This a complete Find. The staff (Beth and Brandon last night) is knowledgeable, polite, and quite capable. The food is superbly prepared and well-presented. I had the house salad to start which was crisp and ample, and the pork with redeye gravy, collards, and cornbread dressing was delicious. My friend had two small plates, which were also very well prepared.... More

We enjoyed our meal and our waiter was very good. However, we were a little under-whelmed after the hype about this restaurant. We feel we have had equal meals at a lower cost in Portland. However, as a wine lover, they do have some lovely non-Champagne bubblies by the glass. Also the wine list had some very interesting wines.

My wife had the truly interesting dish of the night: squid stuffed with lamb. She enjoyed it so much, that I didn't even get a taste! Four of us had delicious meals, great service, and even with being seated next to the open kitchen, the noise level was not a problem. Delightful, and we will go back.

We found this restaurant via the Portland Travel app (a must-download). We were surprised to be able to get a table right away--this place was populated but not super lively. Its low key vibe enabled waiters and seemingly chefs to spend time with us, making some great wine recommendations as well as serving us an amazing small plate tasting menu.... More

My wife and I enjoyed a great evening at Park Kitchen. They do both small and large plates that can be ordered tapas-style, but I recommend going with the tasting menu. It's a way for the chef to send you selections from the kitchen in a way that allows each dish to build upon the last. This also includes dessert.... More

On our first trip to Portland we were staying close to the Pearl District, and decided to give Park Kitchen a try because the hotel told us it was a good farm-to-table restaurant. We were very apprehensive when reviewing the menu, honestly, based on the descriptions, nothing jumped out at me. There were three of us dining, so we decided... More
